March 21, 2022

Beverly, MA – (March 21, 2022) – Sciessent, a global leader in antimicrobial, anti-odor, anti-pilling, and water repellent technologies, announced GOTS Certification for NOBO™ anti-odor technology.

GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) is the worldwide leading textile processing standard for organic fibers, including ecological and social criteria, backed by independent certification of the entire textile supply chain.

This GOTS certification certifies NOBO’s chemistry formulation and production processes meet the required ecological and social global sustainability criteria. It also affirms NOBO is an ecologically and socially responsible product with no adverse effects to the ecosystem or biodiversity throughout its lifecycle.

Specifically formulated to reduce odor in natural and synthetic fabrics, NOBO adsorbs compounds responsible for body odor without the use of an antimicrobial.

This GOTS certification certifies NOBO's chemistry formulation and production processes meet the required ecological and social global sustainability criteria.

“Achieving GOTS Certification for NOBO is a testament to our emphasis on sustainability during product development,” said Sciessent CEO, Paul C. Ford. “We want to ensure every product we release adheres not only to our own company values, but to the requirements necessary for a more eco-friendly industry.”

In addition to being GOTS certified, NOBO is also bluesign® approved and listed on the Zero Discharge of Hazardous Chemicals (ZDHC) Foundation ZDHC Gateway, complying with ZDHC Level 3 requirements. For more information on NOBO, please visit our dedicated NOBO technology page on our website.
